Good Cooking In San Francisco, Calif.

Sarah Nelson is changing the world one square meal at a time. Her Three Squares mobilizes dozens of volunteers who share their nutrition know-how to help low-income San Francisco-area residents eat healthier.

Volunteer nutritionists and chefs teach adults and children healthy meal planning with recipes ranging from massaged kale salad to sweet potato tacos. The classes, based on a national program called Cooking Matters, are free to participants.

Sarah secures grants, trains volunteers and keeps the program running on a shoestring budget in order to help local residents reduce obesity and increase their health while enjoying delicious, budget-friendly recipes.

Pam Scholtz is a volunteer chef with Three Squares and listens to KQED.
